I have a fresh installation of freeBSD 5.4 and fresh ports tree update and cannot install ntop from ports.

If I try:

# cd /usr/ports/net/ntop
# make install clean

I get following errors:

rrdPlugin.c: In function `graphCounter':
rrdPlugin.c:583: error: too few arguments to function `rrd_graph'
rrdPlugin.c: In function `netflowSummary':
rrdPlugin.c:728: error: too few arguments to function `rrd_graph'
rrdPlugin.c: In function `graphSummary':
rrdPlugin.c:926: error: too few arguments to function `rrd_graph'
gmake[3]: *** [rrdPlugin.lo] Error 1

gmake[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/ports/net/ntop/work/ntop'
gmake: *** [all] Error 2

to reinstall doesn't help either.

install from packages works:

# pkg_add -r ntop

ntop has been installed, but is not quite ready to be used yet!

You need to set an administrator password for ntop before it may be used.
Just run startup script to be prompted for the password.

Note that the installed startup script will NOT be execute at system
startup by default. If you wish ntop to start when your system boots,
you should make this script executable:

# chmod 555 %%LOCALBASE%%/etc/rc.d/ntop.sh

NB!! NB!! NB!!
In the past, ntop has been the subject of repeated security vulner-
abilities, particularly relating to its web interface. It is strongly
suggested that you protect your ntop web interface via packet filters
or TCP wrappers.
IPv6 isn't currently supported by the port.


with freeBSD 5.2.1 on the same hardware I didn't have any problems.
